Just wanted to remind you all that you can access our free Basal Metabolic Rate and Body Mass Index calculators at the following web address:
Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is basically the amount of calories your body burns in a 24-hour period if you were to just lay awake on the couch. Our calculator takes into account your activity level so you know even more accurately how many calories you burn each day. Once you figure this out, you can determine how much you should be eating to lose weight. Remember, an average healthy weight loss per week is 1-2 pounds. It takes a deficit through food or exercise of 3,500 calories to lose 1 pound.
Your body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women. The only problem I have with this measurement is that if you’re really tall, really short, or really muscle-dense, you will be off the charts on your BMI. I’d stick with the BMR to know if you’re in the healthy zone as far as the amount you’re carrying around. Too much is no good!
All the best,
